House for one person
Competition - honorable mention
The project with the name Inklusorium is an entry for the Baumeister competition that was asking for a solution for undeveloped plots in the city center of Cologne. The idea for this competition was to reflect about the character of the city in nowadays. The idea for the housing project is to design a building for one person, built with thick concrete walls, like a "refugium" from the chaotic and stressful life in the city. A staircase surrounds an inner part where the different types of rooms are vertically organized. Each room is for one need. Each room opens with a precise window to the city and offers a dialogue with the environment, if needed. Light and dark spaces are alternating and creating the atmosphere for an urban "refugium".
